Redirection: Despite using 410 it reports as 404 on Google and Site

There are some pages I purposely deleted from my site, on Rankmath I set the redirection to “410” but when I click these links they show me a 404 page, the funniest part of it is, it reports as a 404 error on Google.

I want it to be 410 not 404, while Google understands both, it requires that for deleted pages a 410 error is better.
